and not mubarak. i want to show you a clip of the interview and talk to you. >> your message to president obama is what? >> my message to president obama is -- and i have lots of respect for him. i worked with him and i have a lot of admiration for him. i tell him, you need to review your policy. you need to let go of mubarak. you shouldn't be behind the curve. you need to start with confidence with the people and not with the people smothering the people. >> anderson, this persistent thing now that america has been on the wrong side of the fence, it's a difficult situation because america for 30 years has been a good ally for mubarak and he's done a good job for americans. is it fair to criticize president obama now for not going against him or do you understand the difficulties? >> reporter: when you hear protesters in the square concerned about whether or not it's fair from their vantage point the u.s. has been supporting a regime which has been corrupt, which has been arresting people, torturing people and which has been not meeting their needs for some 30 years, certainly over the last ten
's interview with christiane amanpour, because he was trying to make out that although president obama has asked him to go now, that will descend the country into chaos. i mean it seems a pretty ironic statement given what we're witnessing today. we've seen scenes chaotic to put it mildly. >> i mean for 30 years mubarak's systemic policy has been to prevent any kind of a secular reasonable opposition so that he can stay. if it's not for me we'll have chaos in egypt and at times american officials have kind of believed that, but in the last few days i think that has lost all credibility because we had a peaceful secular largely secular democracy movement that was actually quite well organized and certainly very peaceful and then kind of erupted in chaos in the last couple of days because the president has sent his thugs to try to crush that movement. >> it's 4 a.m. on friday morning in cairo. i wish i could show you live pictures from tahrir square, but there are no cameras left there to record what's going on. it remains a sinister mystery. anderson, we just heard from nick there. he's fee
keep going. >> thank you. >> thank you, sarah. when we come back, does president obama really like what he sees in egypt tonight? later, blowback. does the chaos in cairo put you at risk? >>> the egyptian government has a responsibility to protect the rights of its people. those demonstratingle also have a responsibility to do so peacefully. but everybody should recognize a simple truth. the issues at stake in egypt will not be resolved through violence or suppression. and we are encouraged by the restraint that was shown today. we hope that it continues. >> that was president obama just a little while ago sounding optimistic about egypt. i'm joined by wolf blitzer. is he right to feel optimistic? >> i'm not sure he does feel optimistic. i think he was encouraged that today we didn't see the violence we saw yesterday and the day before, but based on everything i'm hearing from inside the obama administration they are deeply worried. this is by no means looking rosy right now. they've got a game plan. they would like to see president mubarak step down in a graceful, dignified way. maybe
of "piers morgan tonight." >>> good evening. president obama was on the phone for half an hour tonight with president hosni mubarak. he called for a moment of transformation in egypt and said the status quo is simply not sustainable. >> after his speech tonight, i spoke directly to president mubarak. he recognizes that the status quo is not sustainable and that a change must take place. indeed, all of us who are privileged to serve in positions of political power do so at the will of our people. through thousands of years, egypt has known many moments of transformation. the voices of the egyptian people tell us that this is one of those moments. this is one of those times. >> i'm going to go straight to anderson cooper, my colleague who's been in cairo since early this morning. anderson, president obama talks about the will of the people. it seems to me from what i'm watching down in cairo tonight is that the will of the people is that mubarak must go now, not when it suits him in the next election. >> reporter: well, we certainly saw a huge turnout of protesters calling for mubarak to
refused to leave. tonight president obama has said that does not appear to be what the egyptian people want will all are agreed the next few hours are critical. once again, we're according every angle of this historic story. ben and ivan, live in cairo. and here, wolf blitzer, john king, and joining us another familiar face. we'll start immediately. ben, bring me up to speed with what's happening right now. >> reporter: what we see is the continued presence of thousands of demonstrators in tahrir square. they spread some are still outside the state tv headquarters which of course is surrounded by army tanks. others, a few hundred, we're will, have made their way in the direction of the presidential palace. they haven't gotten really near it because that also is surrounded by rings of armor from the egyptian army. but of course, this is just what, it is 4:00 in the morning in cairo. tomorrow is friday. a traditional day of prayer and protest, the expectations are, those protests will grow to proportions we have yet to see in cairo. piers? >> it has been another completely random day of
is as frustrated as anyone. >> if you're president obama and watching these scenes roll out like the predicted domino effect, part of you must be excited that freedom and democracy is breaking out in this way. another part must be terrified by the implications. >> terrified because you don't want thousands and thousands of people who are peacefully protesting, want a change in the government, 42 years of gadhafi is enough for these people. and if these people are going to be brutally killed whether by war planes or helicopters, gunfire, then, you know, it's going to be an awful situation. it's going to underscore -- the changes are dramatic throughout africa and the middle east right now. and i suspect this is only just the beginning. the next six months or a year is going to see even greater change. >> if you're an american watching this, what should you be thinking? >> you should be thinking, first of all, the young people who are going to die. that's awful enough. because a lot of innocent people, young men and women are going to die. and some not so young. just people who want to see that
developing very fast and it is quite a historic day as president obama just said that egypt will never be the same again. >> it's an extraordinary example of people power taking on a regime that it no longer wanted in government and beating it, isn't it? >> certainly this is unprecedented, not only in egypt but in the region and i dare say in the world. >> i mean do you feel exhilarated or do you feel slightly apprehensive. >> no, no, no, i'm very glad that we have come to a conclusion to a process that started a few days ago. with the change of the government, the appointment of the vice president, the cleaning of the democratic party and then finally with the president stepping down, making way for constitutional changes to take place immediately. >> your new to your job, and your job is very specific, you have to get the egyptian economy back on its feet. there are reports of food shortages, there's a danger that some people may go very hungry here, there's persistent talk of further strikes and so on. how quickly do you think you can get egypt's economy going again? >> well, i thin

. you were talking about president obama. >> i'm sorry. i know the mubaraks. i've known him since he became president, obviously, and their family. in this particular case, when talking about a crisis in our region, i try to avoid talking about personalities. i don't think it's about the penalties. i think it's about the approach to governance. i think it's about the principles of an open, healthy, accountable state apparatus that can draw in people from all points of view, and in this case create a movement going forward. egypt can be a model of a peaceful transition, i think. >> do you believe that any peaceful transition in a country can actually happen in reality if you turf out leaders after 30 years. he's been in many people's eyes pretty good to the west and pretty good allies. is that a sensible way to proceed, or do you think the sensible way is the way president obama seems to prefer, a gradual transition, where mu bake is allowed to stay for a while, everything calls down and leaves with some dignity and honor, which a lot of people in america thinks he's earned, even thou
for al qaeda. >> thank you very much, indeed. president obama has been walking a fine line ever since the chaos in libya began. how much can the white house do to get gadhafi to give up and go? joining me now is my colleague john king. john, as we see these desperate scenes from libya apparently getting worse by the second, what kind of pressure is now getting on to the white house and president obama to actually consider some kind of military intervention with the wider international community? >> no talk as yet, piers. they did have an emergency meeting of nato to discuss possible, emphasis on possible, military options down the road. what the president is doing tonight is taking a much more aggressive tone. as you know he has been criticized for moving too slowly, being too timid, for not standing with the people of libya. tonight -- and timing is critical -- once the americans on that ferry reached malta, once a plane carrying americans reached istanbul, the president shifted quickly. this is the sanctions, sanctions imposed against moammar gadhafi, his four children, and any enti
. the country had no spirit and ultimately he did no end that we have obama. that's what we have. that was a gift from president bush. i thought clinton actually had -- >> you're not a fan of the president? >> definitely not a fan. look, i am the most militant person that there is. i'm a big war guy in terms of i want total defense. i want perhaps an increase in defense spending but you don't attack the wrong country. iraq did not knock down the world trade center. frankly, they used to kill terrorists in iraq. you could not be a terrorist and last a day in iraq. now it's the harvard, the breeding ground for terrorists. anybody that wants to be a terrorist goes to iraq, afghanistan, they go to the places where we are. the fact is, bush i thought was not good. clinton was a good president but he was so marred with this whole monica thing. i mean, he's a friend of mine. he's a lovely guy. he's a great guy. i really like him. but i thought they treated him very, very harshly, absolutely. >> and he's more popular now. >> he's more popular because he's a quality guy. he really is. he'
? >> a little bit. a little bit. >> you are being followed by more people than president obama on twitter. >> and oprah. that's like shocking. >> isn't it? >> it's -- >> celebrities always pretend they don't care how many followers they've got. it's all that matters. >> it's all i care about. >> i've started six weeks and i've got about 205,000 and at the end of the show, i need a bit of help from you two. i need to embrace your brand -- >> we need to double it. >> let's see how many followers we could bring by one tweet. >> now we're talking. >> yes. >> i like this. >> yes. >> now, talk to me about the brand, the kardashian brand. because be brutally honest with me, do either of you have -- i'm a judge on "america's got talent." if you were to come on and i was to ask you, honestly, what is your talent, would you have any? >> i would absolutely say that marketing is a skill. and i think that -- you know, fashion, as well. i mean we've -- we each, each sister, have been stylists at some point in our lives. we own three successful clothing stores. so i think that we are smart enough to und
, there are estimates the death toll may be as high as 1,000 and rising fast. president obama blasted the gadhafi regime in this manner? the suffering and bloodshed is outrageous and it is unacceptable. so are threats and orders to shoot peaceful protesters and further punish the people of libya. >> cnn's ben wedeman is live in benghazi, the second largest. you have done an extraordinary job to get where you are. what have you found since getting there? >> reporter: what i found, piers, something amazing, local people, lawyers, businessmen and others have set up what amounts to an ad hoc government dealing with everything, food supply, public health, even garbage collection and they say they're doing a much better job than the government did when moammar gadhafi ran the show. piers. >> you're inside at the moment, for security reasons which we completely understand. what do you sense about the movement now against gadhafi? are we seeing a similar situation to egypt? more bloodthirsty but with a similar end game? could this be over quickly? >> reporter: it's not clear but a more complicated situation. le
's the fast way that obama can try and solve this? >> you're asking the wrong guy in terms of that. i think that -- i do think -- that i think -- and you know, i've been a big fan initially of obama obama but i think he missed the point in the very beginning. because jobs is what it is really about. in other words, other considerations, health care and the rest of it are all very worth while but we need to put people back to work. in other words, we about need to get the economy working. >> do you think america needs to go back and build things again? it's forgotten what it did so magnificently 40, 50 years ago? >> not only do we need to put people to work we need to becomes more sophisticated in terms of technology. we need to look at what happened in terms of our educational system. if you line us up against other foreign countries in terms of education, et cetera, we are not the greatest anymore. we pride ourselves in being the greatest but, you know, we've lost track of things. >> take a short break. when i come back we'll bring a young lady on to the set that has apparently tamed the h
your home smelling like home. >>> barack obama offered his support for egypt as they begin life without president mubarak. they say the country will never be the same. a quarter of the military budget comes from the united states. mr. obama praises the army's role so far. >> the military has served patriotically and responsibly as a caretaker to the state and will have to ensure a transition that is credible in the eyes of the egyptian people. that means protecting the rights of egypt's citizens, lifting the emergency law, revising the constitution and other laws making this change irreversible and laying out a clear path to election that is are fair and free. the united states will continue to be a friend and partner to egypt. we stand ready to provide whatever assistance is necessary and asked for to pursue a credible transition. >>> european nations expressed concern that it could become another iran. few leaders voiced those worries. peggy anderson reports. >>> reaction coming in thick and fast. she was rejoicing along with the egyptian people. i wish them, above all, a society that
